Air Canada flight attendants removed a disoriented and belligerent co-pilot from the cockpit before one of them stepped up, sat down and helped the captain land the 767, according to a report just released by the Irish Air Accident Investigation Unit.
The flight, from Toronto to London, made an emergency landing at Shannon after the co-pilot was removed from the cockpit and restrained by the crew.
The incident occurred in January. Initial news stories didn’t mention the flight attendant and reported that the captain landed the plane alone. None of the crew was named in the Irish report.
